Lead exposure of the child population was studied in three different areas in Greece :
Kalamata which is a rural area of Southern Greece ;
Tavros, a district of Athens with a considerable industrial activity ;
and Lavrion, a small city near Athens where a lead-zinc mining and smelting industrial complex has existed for more than 90 years.
The results were evaluated with respect to a number of individual, social and environmental variables (i.e. smelter, occupation of the father) especially those concerning the area of Lavrion which is the most heavily polluted area in Greece.
The results of this study can be considered as an index for the extent of the lead pollution problem in the named areas of Greece.
